Even when the Red Sox lose, they are interesting.

Seems tough to hit for the cycle in a losing cause. The Red Sox winning streak might be over, but don’t blame Mookie Betts, who homered to complete the cycle in the 9th.

His MVP case is getting more and more compelling while the Red Sox hope to start winning again in Baltimore.

Several teams have come out of the gate strong, winning games and making an early statement. The Giants are winning games without Bumgarner, the Mets and Pirates are creating a nice foundation and the Red Sox have won a week’s worth of games in a row.

Coming out of the gate strong in this episode of Sully Baseball.

It is Clayton Kershaw’s birthday. It may be unfair that some of his post season failures hang over his head, but baseball isn’t always fair.

Meanwhile it is the 100th anniversary of the Red Sox 1918 World Series title. I can not tell you how wonderful it is to never think about that year again as a Red Sox fan.

In my sleep, I saw a clear and specific vision regarding Game 7 of the yet to be played 2018 World Series. Was it a prophecy? Was it a dream? Should I play PowerBall?

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 5, 2017

IMG_0538

MLB Network

Well… it is safe to say Jose Altuve is ready for the big stage. When you hit 3 homers in a game, you join names like Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, George Brett, Albert Pujols and Adrian Beltre for all time players to smash a trio of taters. (Oddly Adam Kennedy is also on that list.)

Chris Sale, the Red Sox best hope for a victory in the post season, pulled his best Clayton Kershaw in October impersonation, and that is no compliment.

Meanwhile Terry Francona held back his ace one day but got an ace like performance from the replacement starter. The Indians took Game 1 and have a rested and ready Corey Kluber for Game 2.

Good Luck Yankees.

So who owned October?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 5
2017 American League Division Series Game 1:

Receiving 1 WOO

 

Jose Altuve had a historic night at the plate, launching a trio of solo homers, as the Astros ran away with Game 1 against Boston, 8-2.

Trevor Bauer kept the Yankees hitless into the 6th and finished with 6 2/3 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and 8 strikeouts to earn the 4-0 decision for the Indians.

Jay Bruce doubled and homered, driving in 3, to power the Indians past the Yankees, 4-0.

Justin Verlander worked out of trouble in 2 innings and finished with 6 innings and 2 runs to earn the 8-2 decision for the Astros over the Red Sox.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Starlin Castro got 2 of the Yankees 3 hits in their 4-0 defeat by Cleveland.

Jaime Garcia kept the Indians scoreless and hitless for 2 2/3 innings, striking out 3, but the Yankees were blanked 4-0.

Sandy Leon got a pair of hits, drove in a run and threw out a would be base stealer in the Red Sox 8-2 loss in Houston.

 

Current WOO Totals MLB 2017

Hitters ‘WOO’ MLB 2017,

Jose Altuve – Astros 1, Jay Bruce – Indians 1, Brett Gardner – Yankees 1, Ketel Marte – Diamondbacks 1, Starlin Castro – Yankees 1/2, Brian Dozier – Twins 1/2, Sandy Leon – Red Sox 1/2, Trevor Story – Rockies 1/2,

Pitchers ‘WOO’ MLB 2017,

Trevor Bauer – Indians 1, Robbie Ray – Diamondbacks 1, David Robertson – Yankees 1, Justin Verlander – Astros 1, Jaime Garcia – Yankees 1/2, Chris Rusin – Rockies 1/2,

Sully Baseball Podcast – The Red Sox should NOT covet Giancarlo Stanton plus Remembering 1985 Cardinals – August 23, 2017

Giancarlo Stanton is having an unbelievable season playing for the Miami Marlins. Should the Red Sox try to trade for him?

HELL NO!!!

Would YOU sign an injury prone player in his late 20’s to an 11 year contract? At the cost of one of your core players?

I hope not.

That plus I call for the name to be changed for Yawkey Way and I figure out which Cardinals team should have won.

teamphoto_1978THE TEAMS THAT SHOULD HAVE WON: The first part of a series on the podcast that I will do for the next 31 Saturdays.

I look at the teams that if they had won the World Series, they would have done so under the best circumstances and with the best collection of players. First team I cover are my Red Sox and I look at the 1978 squad.

Tom Brunansky made a great catch to clinch the 1990 AL East Division for the Red Sox. I remembered looking for a place in New York to watch the game. And comedian Mike Donovan recorded the catch on video. Today those two actions would be taken for granted. In 1990, they took determination to do.

It is a modern technology episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Here is the clip of Mike Donovan’s video.

Clay Buchholz is no longer a member of the Red Sox, and thus ends a complicated tenure that should be at least saluted.

Chris Sale was dealt to the Red Sox from the White Sox… and oddly it could make a lot of sense for both teams.

The Red Sox are trying to win now and got him without bteaking up their young outfield.

The White Sox need quality AND quantity in their farm and Sale’s value is at its peak.

Socks are changed and bad puns are made on this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

New York Yankees State Of The Union For 2017: Stemming The Tide For Upcoming Seasons

The Yankees shocked the baseball world by contending for the last 2 months after dealing away Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran at the Deadline. With a the young '"Baby Bombers" on the way, tt will take a few good veterans to compliment the talent in order for the Yankees to become extremely dangerous once again. It all starts with the GM Brian Cashman.

The Yankees shocked the baseball world by contending for the last 2 months in 2016 after dealing away Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran at the Deadline. With a the young ‘”Baby Bombers” on the way, tt will take a few good veterans to compliment the talent in order for the Yankees to become extremely dangerous once again. It all starts with the GM Brian Cashman.

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

Follow The MLB Reports On Twitter 

I will be the first one to give credit to Brian Cashman for arranging the July Trade Deadline deal moves to free up a rebuild on the fly.  The Yankees rewarded their longterm GM by continuing their season streak of over .500 to 22 years.

The management has also been fortunate that Gary Sanchez fared so incredibly well – so they could sell Brian McCann to the Astros, and effectively free up another $10 MIL into their couch cushions.

As it sits right now the clubs projected roster is looking to be in the $167 MIL range for total team salary.  Unfortunately they are still on the hook to CC Sabathia for $25 MIL and Alex Rodriguez for $21 MIL in 2017. even though latter is not even on the roster anymore.

So what do the Yanks do this winter?  They are perennial abusers of the Salary Tax Threshold, and have been paying 50% of their dollars spent beyond the limit for the last several years. 

With the news of talks proceeding on that number potentially reaching $200 MIL or under the new CBA, the Pinstripers should definitely dole out some bread for Free Agents this offseason.

I would say that for the Bronx Bombers to be competitive for the AL East, they need to add at least $50 MIL in players salaries this winter in order to fight the Jays and Red Sox for the Division.

I decided to watch Game 1 of the Division Series between the Red Sox and Indians at The Dutch Goose in Menlo Park, California.

There I saw the reverse of the Tyranny of the Save, hated pinch running and met a guy from Massachusetts named Bill.
